(aka: Heliotropium WNHPAULAV) Heliotropium 'Augusta Lavender' is an amazing improvement of the old-fashioned Heliotropium amplexicaule. This Brent Barnes complex hybrid, forms a winter deciduous patch to 2' tall x 3' wide. From late spring through Christmas, it is smothered with flower heads of lavender along with the added color from both monarch and swallowtail butterflies, and an array of bees. For us, flowering continues unabated despite temperatures in the mid 20s F. Our patch has shown very slight stoloniferous tendencies, but nothing of garden concern. Our plants sailed through 11 degrees F, in winter 2022/2023.

Heliotrope contains alkaloids that are potent liver toxins. Typically heliotrope is not very palatable, but can cause problems when nibbled on in large quantities by pets.
